Apple announced a $200 price cut on the iPhone just two months after its release and it has set off a firestorm of indignant comments by Apple fan boys (uh, I mean early adopters) of how they got screwed by Apple and they should sue the company for lowering the price. All this for a product that as far as I can tell anyone can get if they go to the Apple store since it’s far from selling out.
I don’t think I need to say much on how silly their arguments are although I can also sympathize to a certain extent especially for those who might have have bought it only a couple of weeks ago because they needed a new phone. However, the one argument that just seems so ridiculous is the one that says, “I’m ok with the price cuts if it happens 6 months after launch rather then two.” How does 6 months, or 5 months, 3 months or 2 months matter? What changed during those extra 4 months?
I wonder if any of the complainers will be home buyers ‘cause they’re going to suffer from a serious case of buyer’s remorse.
